WASHINGTON – The Polish Festival Seattle is a joyful celebration of Polish culture, traditions and contemporary achievements with audiences in the Pacific Northwest. It is produced by Seattle Polish Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, in partnership with Seattle Center and with support and collaboration from the Polish Home Association and Polish-American community, who contribute their time, leadership and energy to the event.

The 8th Annual Polish Festival Seattle will be held on July 13, 2019 (12-8 p.m.) at the Seattle Center Armory and Mural Amphitheatre, as part of the year-round Seattle Center Festál Cultural Festivals.

The Polish Festival Seattle program will feature:
– authentic Polish food: kielbasa, cabbage rolls, pierogi, hunter’s stew, potato pancakes,
   pickle soup or blood sausage;
– live music and dance performances: Draka Duo, Andy Mirkovich, Mlodzi Polanie,
New Age Flamenco, Laure Struber-Mosnier, Karpaty, Vivat Musica! Choir, Tekla Klebetnica,
Nell and Jim Band, and Yaazda;
– exhibits: Solidarity, Famous Polish Americans, Pacific Northwest Polish Community;
– films: Passing the Torch; Bronka, Lady of the Mountain / Kobieta Skała; A Piece of Poland in Seattle;
– fun activities: face painting, watercolor poppy painting and wianki (head wreaths) making;
– demos and workshops: pickling, pierogi and bigos making;

Founded in 2012 and a proud member of Festál, Polish Festival Seattle is a family-oriented gathering place for the Greater Seattle multicultural community, a place for Polish Americans to explore their heritage, and a venue for all visitors to learn about their Polish neighbors. We believe that, through cultural awareness, we build understanding and friendship with the community.
